This Monday, November 21 at 7:00pm there will be an important public meeting on the truck stop plan at Beltsville Academy at 4300 Wicomico Ave off of Montgomery Rd.
You can come, learn more about their plan, and voice your opinion.
In an email, Senator Jim Rosapepe and 21st Delegates said
CSX railroad has proposed building a huge new truck stop in Beltsville to load and unload freight from trains. CSX wants to build their huge truck stop on Beltsville Agricultural Research Center property north of Sunnyside Avenue. Their plan will increase truck traffic on Rt. 1 and damage the environment in Beltsville.
Along with Councilwoman Mary Lehman, we are strongly opposed to their truck stop plan.
Also, if you’d like to learn more about it before the meeting or simply sign our petition against the proposed truck stop, go to www.21stDistrictDelegation.com.
